TechPitch™ provides a unique form in technique training. Where other forms of technique training are solely focused on the ball and stick action, the TechPitch™ method will focus on ball and stick action as well as footwork. Besides, the forms and exercises you perform are easily translated to the competition. This allows you to train specifically for situations that occur on the field.
The HOCKEY HAMMER is designed to help strengthen the wrists and arms while practicing ball handling skills on the TechPitch or in other close-control spaces. All sticks are 36.5 inches in length with extra weight (illegal for games) in the head and toe. The HOCKEY HAMMER retails for $75.
TechPitch™ has common ground with karate! The innovator, Albert Monpellier, Monpellier Sports Methods & Solutions, B.V., is a hockey trainer as well as an experienced karate sensei. The karate principle of defending eight corners and moving 360 ͦ is perfectly applicable in the game of hockey.
TechPitch™ is mobile and convenient to unroll in a training facility, on pavement (in a local park or driveway), and even in the living room. Effective technique training is suddenly possible anytime and anywhere with TechPitch™.
